Can you imagine missing Christmas, I don’t know of anyone who wakes up on christmas and goes through the day forgetting that it is christmas, we may forget our brothers/sisters, parents, wife/husband birthday anniversary, but never have I met someone who was unaware that it was Christmas. If therefore nobody misses it, why the title “don’t miss christmas!!!” Though people are aware and don’t forget christmas, they miss the whole point and in this advent season the Holy Spirit is wanting to draw our hearts closer to Christ.
Transcript of "Dont Miss Christmas"
Don't Miss Chrstmas!!!
<ul><li>God cordially invites you to meet and welcome His Son!!! </li></ul><ul><li>When? Just wait for the sign: </li></ul><ul><li>Isa 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. </li></ul>
<ul><li>Mat 2:1-8 Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the east came to Jerusalem, (2) saying, "Where is he who has been born king of the Jews? For we saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him." (3) When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him; (4) and assembling all the chief priests and scribes of the people, he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born. (5) They told him, "In Bethlehem of Judea , for so it is written by the prophet: (6) "'And you, O Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for from you shall come a ruler who will shepherd my people Israel.'" (7) Then Herod summoned the wise men secretly and ascertained from them what time the star had appeared. (8) And he sent them to Bethlehem, saying, "Go and search diligently for the child, and when you have found him, bring me word, that I too may come and worship him." </li></ul>
YOU CAN WORSHIP HIM ANYWHERE!!! <ul><li>Jesus said to her, "Woman, believe me, the hour is coming when neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father... But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth." </li></ul><ul><li>John 4:21,23-24 </li></ul>
<ul><li>Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body. 1 Cor. 6:19-20 </li></ul>
<ul><li>For as I passed along and observed the objects of your worship, I found also an altar with this inscription, 'To the unknown god.' What therefore you worship as unknown, this I proclaim to you. The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in temples made by man, nor is he served by human hands, as though he needed anything, since he himself gives to all mankind life and breath and everything. Acts 17:23-25 </li></ul>And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place, that they should seek God, in the hope that they might feel their way toward him and find him. Yet he is actually not far from each one of us… Acts 17:26-27
